A good amount of advancement of transient ischemic attack (TIA) have occurred since it was first recognized as a major risk factor for stroke during the late 1950’s. Lately, several studies have constantly revealed that patients who have experienced a TIA constitute a mixed people, with numerous causal factors as well as an average 5-10% risk of suffering a stroke during the 30 days that follow the index event. These two features have driven the most vital alterations in the treatment ... read more
The impact of cerebral venous thrombosis on the emissary veins is not well documented. Our study evaluates the presence of scalp edema and the congestion of the emissary veins on magnetic resonance imaging in patients with cerebral venous thrombosis, idiopathic intracranial hypertension and multiple sclerosis in order to determine whether these signs could represent a marker of cerebral venous thrombosis. ... read more
Bilateral medial thalamic strokes are rare and can be caused by an occlusion of the artery of Percheron, an anatomical variant branch off of the posterior cerebral artery. Artery of Percheron (AOP) strokes usually present with general symptoms of hypersomnolence, opthalmopplegia and memory impairment, which may show similar features of other conditions and can delay diagnosis. ... read more
This is a multicenter retrospective observational study, using Clalit health maintenance organization integrated data. We studied unstructured data of 1,339 brain-CT reports of patients aged 50-80 years. Patients were categorized by the presence or absence of brain infarction in the brain CT report and then compared to the presence of stroke diagnoses in the corresponding patient EHR. ... read more
In the last two decades patients affected by cardiovascular disorders and the related disability have greatly increased in part due to the population aging. Diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for these conditions have improved, offering novel non-invasive or less-invasive interventional approaches. ... read more
Movement disorders can be part of acute stroke onset which is important to recognize. We report a rare presentation of a 89-year-old woman who developed hemichorea-hemiballism after an acute stroke caused by an ischemic lesion in the head of the left caudate nucleus; a video segment is included. ... read more
Serum cardiac biomarkers are increased in cerebrovascular diseases. The aim of our study was toassess their levels according to the severity of cardiological and neurological conditions. We recruited 552 acute ischaemic stroke (AS), 290 chronic cerebrovascular (CCVD) and 111 other neuropsychiatric diseases (OND) patients. Blood withdrawals were performed within 12-24 hours. Serial assessments were repeated at day 3 and 7. ... read more
